The LO/KPOJ "Lost Limerick Challenge"

If you prefer to get your Oregon news in anapestic meter with an AABBA rhyme scheme, then we have just the thing for you:

This morning's Oregon news limericks, as written by me, read by quizmaster TJ of Loaded Orygun, and answered (usually) by Carl, Christine,and Paul on the KPOJ 620AM Morning Show, are posted at LO.

And once again we ended up with an extra limerick that didn't make it on the air, so you can play along at home. Fill in the blank with the word or phrase from this week's Oregon news:

Whether live-in boyfriend or spouse,
And no matter if he was a louse,
Ladies, please show restraint--
Though he may be no saint,
You shouldn't _____________.

(Answer in the Comments below, or in this week's Spanning the State.)

Answer: set fire to his house.

[The story: Medford court had two otherwise-unrelated cases sentenced on the same day, each involving a woman who started a fire in her boyfriend's house because was P.O.'ed at him. Alcohol was definitely involved in both cases. Both women pled to a lesser arson charge--probation and a $600 fine. No mention of couples counseling.]
